Great memorial set in the park. A nice place to sit and contemplate. The design of the memorial is particularly pleasing to the eye, and seems very tranquil

Just a lovely way to see the Perth views and also one of the best tourist "shops" in the area. Local and celebfrated artists and their pieces, both practical and decorative. Well worth the visit.

It is unfortunate that the public is restricted access to the honour rolls. We old soldiers never die.

One of the best memorials I have seen, a flame burns in the middle of a pond and never goes out, I love the way it is set out, worth the trip.

Beautiful setting and the lemon scented gums were stunning. Only wish we had time to take a picnic lunch and take in more of the beautiful surroundings.

The War Memorial is a place for quiet contemplation. It is situated in Kings Park with the beautiful Swan River a a back drop. No trip to Kings Park should be complete without a stop for reflection at this very emotive spot.

This memorial is one of the largest and excellently manicured areas one will come across and comes with astonishing views of Perth and the Swan water front.
